By John Hailey It is not that the cost is too great, it is that the earth cannot sustain life when resources are not present. The fact is that population growth is far exceeding the earth's ability to absorb the impacts. Every time we save a group from starvation due to drought or natural disaster, it is only putting a band-aid on a longer-term problem. It's sad, but starvation is a natural response to inadequate resources to sustain life. It's happened so many times in the past, we must learn that this is the earth's way -- survival of the fittest.
